I read that I can use a Mondo Crescent wrench with some protective masking tape or whatever, so long as I keep it applied as close to the barrel side as possible. I can see where having a dedicated tool that allows you to grip more completely, and around the part that's actually getting threaded, would put less stress on the receiver, but, in the case of the M14, is that of real potential benefit?

Thanks for answering my questions?

Been using one for years along with their vise with steel inserts. Works fine for me. A little resin in the mix and you got it made.

Back in the day, when the Canadian legalitjes changed for GENUINE US GI M14 rifles, I dud "Midnight Madness" covert tabletop gunsmithing right on your kitchen table ir some times conunter.

I made up a simple set if receiver and barrel vises, which could be used stand alo e, or bolted down to big chunk of 2"x8" wood, whuch was tgen clamped to table or whatever.

I removed and replaces dzens and dozens of GI barrels on to inexpensive CHINESE receivers .
I may re-post my drawi gs for a do it yoursel set here.

Thanks from nf1e
